From Miller and others (1998): "Explosive ash eruptions along with a lava flow were reported by Coast Guard observers from July 31, 1993 through August 19, 1993; ash clouds were reported to altitudes of 2,500 m at times during this interval."
However, eruptive activity was reported from Seguam as early as May 28. 1993, and this may be the start of this eruption (Smithsonian Institution, 1993): "A small ash burst, rising through clouds near Pyre Peak, was reported by the U.S. Coast Guard on 28 May. A plume to 3 km altitude was reported on 2 June by the NWS, but it is not known if the plume contained ash."
